If you're a single man and you happen to be in this business, you're deemed a player. But I don't see myself as a ladies' man.




I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.




There are certain actors you watch in a movie, and you think, 'Wow, that guy is very skilled.'




I have two beautiful dogs that I cherish.




I grew up in a very old-fashioned Roman Catholic, Italian-Irish family in Philly.




I've never heard of a comedy that hasn't had reshoots, especially for the ending of a movie in a comedy.




I'm so boring.




I don't know if it's animalistic or what, but men become like peacocks with their feathers up when women are around.




In a relationship you want to treat people the way you want to be treated.




When I'm into a woman, I literally can't stop staring. I'm like a little kid. I become completely entranced.




I definitely am a huge lover of comedy, and it's only through doing so many comedies that I've realised how much of an influence they've been on me.




I worked in restaurants the first half of my life.




I think if you live in a black-and-white world, you're gonna suffer a lot. I used to be like that. But I don't believe that anymore.




I want to work with great filmmakers and great actors and get better as an actor.




I think that episode in the third season was great. I'm really glad that we did that. He got to sleep with Sydney and kill Evil Francie and go on a mission and pretend he's a rock star.




Personally, I've made myself a very small window of what I enjoy in this business, which is I love being a big part of the storytelling process.




I remember being away somewhere, and I had forgotten it was Valentine's Day with a person, and that was very embarrassing.




I was on Facebook. I'm not anymore, but my sister always sends pictures to a page. I'm sure you can find a Bradley Cooper there.




When I was a kid, I was always mistaken for a girl.




There's got to be something you want to tell and that's the engine which spurs all of the work you have to do in order to create the story, but you have to love some sort of nugget of what you're telling to be a filmmaker.




My parents have been together since 1963, so that's something.




I seriously love to cook... My grandmother was an amazing cook. As a kid I used to help her make handmade pasta, Cavatelli and Ravioli. It was one of my favorite things to do. I love the idea of making whatever is in the fridge into something.




You can tell if someone's into you. You can feel the chemistry.




I loved the college experience of studying.




I was pretty as a child and I felt that I wasn't very manly and that plagued me for years.




If you look at anybody who's had along career, if you look at the choices they've made - even if the movies haven't worked - they've always worked with great filmmakers.




I just wrapped this movie called 'The Wedding Crashers' which was a pretty big break for me.




My hair has been mocked a lot.




Give me an authentic woman, and I'm happy.




For a comedy to work, magic has to happen.




I used to work the graveyard shift.




If I like a song, I'll just keep playing it, and it never gets old.




It's beyond my control who's going to cast me or how you're going to pigeonholed, so for me, it's just I want to keep doing different things because I want to get better, so hopefully I'll be hired to do them.




My mother emails me stuff about when she finds a paparazzi photo and they're like, his hair is out of control.




Life's complicated and people do things for a lot of reasons.




Comedy is music.
